Taking our Information Revolution vision worldwide

Information Revolution - Happiness for everyone

We at the SoftBank Group continue to hold this vision close to our hearts as we conduct our business.

2013 was a milestone year for SoftBank as we took a major step forward globally.
Sprint joined the SoftBank Group, and we are already getting great results through our close cooperation and sharing of best practices.

For our mobile communications business in Japan, we strengthened our mobile network to address the issue of connectivity in the smartphone era. As a result, we were rated No.1 for smartphone connectivity and high-speed services by third-parties. The entire SoftBank Group will continue to work tirelessly so customers can enjoy smartphone connectivity that is truly superior.

The collective strength of our more than 1,300 companies is being further raised with the membership of Supercell, the global No.1 game company for smartphone game revenues, and Brightstar, the world’s No.1 mobile device distributor.

Together with our new partners, the entire SoftBank Group will continue to take on challenges and strive to enrich people’s lives by accelerating the Information Revolution.

2014 will be a year we where take first steps to fully realize our Corporate Philosophy of “Information Revolution - Happiness for everyone” on the world stage.
We sincerely appreciate your interest in the ever-evolving SoftBank Group and thank you for your continued support.

January, 2014
